Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., walked to the chamber as the U.S. House was preparing to vote on the resolution Thursday.

Washington – The U.S. House overwhelmingly voted Thursday for an expansive condemnation of bigotry, as Democrats struggled to extinguish a controversy over anti-Semitism precipitated by Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar.

"Whether from the political right, center, or left, bigotry, discrimination, oppression, racism, and imputations of dual loyalty threaten American democracy and have no place in American political discourse," read the seven-page resolution, which passed on a vote of 407-23. All eight members of Minnesota's House delegation, including Omar, voted in favor.
